The Great Gatbsy Exemplar Essays

Below are links to exemplar essays on ‘The Great Gatsby’. Now, these essays are for A-Level, so are of a very high standard – however, do look at them carefully, as this will give you an idea of what high quality critical responses should look like.

The third link is particularly interesting, as it shows an A grade and a C grade essay – think about the use of vocabulary, the references to other texts and the use of critical terminology in the essays, as well as how you can use these to improve your own work.
